2nd suspect arrested in cab driver's shooting death

HOUSTON - Two people are now in custody in connection to the shooting death of a Houston cab driver.

A judge ordered Jock Quinn Wilson, 28, to be held without bond Thursday in connection to Donalvon Rhyne's death.

According to court documents, Wilson claims he was not the one who pulled the trigger.

"He claims that his co-defendant was the actual shooter," a prosecutor said during the hearing. "The complainant's wallet was stolen and the debit card of the complainant was swiped at numerous locations around Harris County."

Rhyne was shot in front of the Camden Vanderbilt Apartments off Brompton near Holcombe on Feb. 21 while waiting to pick up another job.

Police said Rhyne was robbed by at least two men and then shot to death.

Court records show a palm print was lifted from the victim's side view mirror and that helped connect the suspects to the crime scene.

Wilson has been in trouble with the law before. He was released from prison on New Year's Eve after serving a 7-year sentence for aggravated robbery.

Less than two months later, Wilson is back behind bars and charged with murder.

A second suspect, 23-year-old Jermaine Palmer, was taken into custody on Wednesday by the Gulf Coast Task Force.

Houston police said their investigation continues with the possibility of more suspects being arrested.

Houston police announced Monday an increased reward of up to $10,000 for information related to this crime.
